Nu Image breaks ground on studio

Company plans new digs in Shreveport

Nu Image/Millennium Films plans to break ground on a new studio in Shreveport, La., on Tuesday.

The company said it will build on 6.7 acres and eventually expand to 20 acres with three soundstages, production offices, a mill and a prop house.

Nu Image/Millennium noted that it has already shot five films in Shreveport: Jessica Simpson films “Blonde Ambition” and “Major Movie Star”; “Mad Money”; “My Mom’s New Boyfriend”; and “Cleaner.”

“Louisiana has always been a good place to shoot films,” said prexy of production Boaz Davidson. “We are looking forward to continued success in Shreveport. The state tax incentives make it quite inviting for filmmakers. As we continue to build our studio, we expect the skilled local workforce to increase, more production resources to become available and the number of films to increase.”

Nu Image/Millennium said the Shreveport studio will accommodate up to six productions at any given time and employ up to 500 production personnel.
